Code Signing Certificates

If you're a software creator, distributing your code via an installer, you need to have your code signed. When a user tries to install an application, they get a prompt saying if the code is from a verified source or not. If a user gets a warning that it's from an unknown publisher, it raises doubt of the integrity of the source and the code. Further, an EV Code Signing Certificate gets you instant reputation with Microsoft's SmartScreen® Filter.

All Certificates also receive multi-year discounts!
